During the holiday, I spent the long car ride reviewing Steps 6 and 7. The spiritual principle of Step 7 is humility.
I was curious about “what does it mean to be humble?” In the book, Ramban: A Letter For The Ages, I came across this description on the qualities of a humble person. I thought it was helpful and practical.
- Gentle speech
- Acceptance of obstacles and good fortune with grace
- Respectful: sensitive to the feelings and honor of other people
- Forgiving of others
- Self-restraint with words and deeds
- Self-review/ self-reflection
- Prayer and meditation
